You read that right: An inch of snow.
The snow caused slick conditions on roads. Over 125 accidents were reported, according to police, and hundreds of drivers trapped in traffic complained of nine-hour long standstills.
"One inch of snow did this. One. Inch. Of. Snow," one Twitter user wrote of what some have jokingly dubbed as "Snowmadeggon" and "Carmageddon."
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser apologized this morning for the city's "inadequate" response Wednesday night and said officials are "very sorry."
Users on Twitter and other social media are now posting hilarious memes and jokes about the "inch of snow" disaster:
Naturally, of course, the D.C. area is now expected to get up to 20 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service.
